Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary is one of a total of 13 underwater areas which are federally designated and being protected by NOAA. This list also includes three separate reef areas, noted as Stetson Bank, East Flower Garden Bank, and West Flower Garden Bank. NOAA seeks to expand this area by approximately 383 square miles of additional bottom features together with reefs, however, the proposal is presently awaiting approval by the Trump administration.
